in gaza, president obama's top diplomat at the u.n. is facing angry politics in washington. susan rice, the president's u.n. ambassador and a leading candidate to replace clinton at the state department, has been subject to withering and sometimes outlandish attacks from a wide range of republicans. senators john mccain and lindsey graham, two foreign policy leaders have slammed rice for her initial comments about the source of the libya attacks with mccain threatening to filibuster if he's nominated. many other republicans have joined in. 97 members of the house sent the president a letter monday opposing rice. now president obama is not backing down. the white house has confirmed it's still considering promoting rice and last week the president said if mccain and graham want to go after someone, they should go after him. rice was not exactly a household name during obama's first term. but all this heat from the political players is drawing some media fire. "the new york times" maureen dowd has knocked rice as an unsavvy washington player. while the "times" editorial page came out wit
. they won't let them go to the u.n. and declare statehood. they won't let them govern their own territory in the west bank. the wall that has been constructed and the roadblocks and checkpoints that exist in the settlements that are expand having undercut the legitimacy of that leadership. so what we have got is a situation that only gets worse and that's why the united states has to take a tougher stand. that's why we have to have those who can talk to the folks in hamas and gaza take a tougher position and ultimately bring an end to this. >> that's going to be the last word on that, mr. zogby. >> we're going to go down that road, open the door to hell, we saw it play out before in 2008 and '06 and many times before and ben wedeman is right, all we get is a lot of dead people and we start right back where we were with no peace and people still needing to talk to each other. >> james zogby, president of the arab-american institute. thank you for your time, sir. >>> back to the united states. we have a story developing now. two people now, two people are missing and two people are believed
around for some beauty products. then decided to leave. bill: we are waiting for u.n. ambassador susan rice. she is back on capitol hill. yesterday she met with three top republicans who all said they were more disturbed about the situation after the meeting than they were when the meeting started. have a listen. >> i'm more convinced than ever, it was bad, it was unjustified to give the scenario as presented by ambassador rice and president obama 3 weeks before an election. bill: that was behind sa -- that was lindsey graham. you are on the record saying you will not support her if she is nominated for secretary of state. but not just because of libya. what is the problem. >> let me clarify that. my first thought is what if susan rice was thrown under the bus and they all knew she didn't have the information from the cia. then i thought you would have to feel sorry for her. since yesterday talking to some of those to whom she talked i'm convinced in my mind that she is part of the coverup, she knew all the time the cia information that was given to her. but your point is very good. i
administration's talking points, of course, especially from u.n. ambassador susan rice who has gotten a lot of heat since then in the days after the attack. let's listen. >> our current best assessment based on the information that we have at present is that, in fact, what this began as was a spontaneous, no the a premeditated response to of what had transpired in cairo. >> so how did that happen? how was that accurate at the time? if we know that this was in fact a premeditated, not spontaneous occurrence? >> well, we don't know the degree it was premeditated. that's still something that's under investigation. how much advance planning was there or was this planned within 24 hours or the same day. so that's a question we still have to the get to the bottom of, but the important point in terms of the ambassador's statement on that sunday talk program is she was using the intelligence community's best estimate. at that time when she appeared on the sunday talk shows, the intelligence community still believed that that began as a protest, that, yes, there were terrorists and extremists involv

amanpour, thank you. >>> u.n. secretary-general ban ki-moon says long-term solutions are necessary to address the underlying causes of conflict. joining me now is michael orin, the ambassador to the united states from israel. we heard about residents along the gaza border who are doubtful about the ability long term to maintain the cease-fire and live up to the agreements and make progress on agreements. how can you guarantee that hamas will not use this and other groups like islamic jihad as an opportunity to rearm, to restock supplies of sophisticated weapons we have seen them happen? >> good to be back with you, anderson, as always, you can understand some israelis are -- are incredulous, a little skeptical about the cease-fire. they have been living under weekly, if not daily rocket attacks from hamas since israel pulled out of gaza in 2005, and, yes, they have seen various cease fires and seen them being violated again and again by hamas. prime minister netanyahu took a courageous decision. president obama asked him to take a risk on the cease-fire, and prime minister netanyah
be additional problems if that doesn't lead to security. u.n. secretary general ban ki-moon says there are other issues necessary to address the conflict now. michael, we have heard from a lot of israelis tonight, particularly in the border regions along the gaza border who are very concerned and very doubtful about hamas's ability, long-term to maintain the cease-fire. to live up to the agreements and make progress on these agreements. how can you guarantee that hamas will simply not use this and other groups, like islamist jihad, to re-arm, to re-stock their supplies of some of the sophisticated weapons that we've seen them having? >> well, first of all it is good to be back, anderson, as always. first of all, you can understand some israelis who are a little skeptical about the cease-fire. they have been living under weekly, if not daily rocket attacks from hamas since israel pulled out of gaza in 2005. and yes, they have seen various cease-fires and seen them violated again and again by hamas. prime minister netanyahu took a very courageous decision, and prime minister netanyahu, out of the

by hamas rockets. >> and i want to ask you about those cease-fire negotiations. there are u.n. officials in egypt right now. egypt is trying to broker a cease-fire agreement with hamas. hamas seems not to be budging. so explain to us like if you're the egyptian president, what are you saying to the leader of hamas? >> the egyptians are in a very difficult situation because on the one hand mohamed morsi, the president of egypt, the muslim brotherhood, in part made its name by outright support for hamas for a radical brand of palestinian nationalism not the more moderate brand of fatah on the west bank. yet the egyptians cannot afford a situation where the united states walks away from its military aid. the egyptians have placed themselves into the center of this extraordinary drama. they're trying to work out a cease-fire. they've been working with the turkish prime minister, prime minister erdogan, the leadership of qatar, and now the u.n. chief ban ki-moon, secretary-general of the united nations, is going to be in egypt today. the sides are very far apart. it doesn't a cease-fire is im
